Description Joe Orton 2006-03-28 10:43:17 UTC
Description of problem:
When shutdown by the init script, httpd has a race between the parent killing
the children, and the parent being killed by the SIGKILL from killproc.  If
there is a lazy/stuck child which refuses to die, killproc may win the race,
SIGKILL the parent, and leave orphaned children.  This is Undesirable Behaviour

This can be eliminated by allowing the httpd init script to specify the time
before the SIGKILL is sent.

(this is an RFE which I will hopefully get round to attaching a patch to RSN)

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2006-07-29 06:47:47 UTC
This is requested in RHEL4 to fix a bug in httpd, it's not just a feature. 
Otherwise I will have to duplicate all of killproc() in the httpd init script or

I'm sorry, it was filed against rawhide, so I had no way to know that.

Comment 4 Joe Orton 2006-07-30 17:02:53 UTC
Oh, sorry, my mistake - I forgot this was filed against Raw Hide, there is
already a separate RHEL4 bug (bug 198468).  Closing this again.
